Justin Boardman was attending a police conference and chose a presentation about how trauma affects the brain that ended up changing how he conducted interviews with sexual assault victims. Justin then co-authored, along with Donna Kelly, Utah Prosecution Council, a Trauma-Informed Victim Interview protocol for adult victims of sexual assault.
Justin now presents and consults locally in Utah and Nationally on a variety of subjects. His focus is to strengthen investigations in a victim-centered, suspect focused, and trauma-informed ways. He also believes in pushing culture change. Recently Justin left active police work to focus on culture change within the community he loves.
